The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recently announced that 45 HCPSS students are semiﬁnalists in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. RHHS is proud to announce that 9 RHHS students earned this semifinalist status.
More than 1.5 million juniors in 21,000 high schools across the country entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semiﬁnalists, representing less than 1% of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships that will be oﬀered next spring.
